We are currently organising the following activity:

2 October 2024, 15:30 - 17:00 - Book Launch 'Policing the Favelas of Rio de Janeiro: Cosmologies of War and the Far-Right'

The Contesting Governance Platform invites you to this book launch of Policing the Favelas of Rio de Janeiro: Cosmologies of War and the Far-Right. This book, written by Tomas Salem, offers a rich and nuanced ethnography of the world of policing within one of the most deadly police forces. It examines how social relations and an authoritarian order are constructed through different narratives and explores the life of police soldiers serving at the frontline of Brazil's war on crime and drugs. 

Joining the discussion are Prof. Dr. Martijn Oosterbaan and Dr. Carolina Maurity Frossard. The session will be moderated by Dr. Tessa Diphoorn
